Smooth Creations Smoothbook DR Notebook


Every once and a while you will get a sample that comes along which you will just fall in love with straight away. As someone who mainly does graphics cards, that doesn't happen too often. Since stretching my arms out to systems, I've fallen in love with literally every piece of kit that comes through my door.

The latest sample to come waltzing through had me head over heels from the second the box was opened. There's just something about Smooth Creations that put them above the rest when it comes to systems.

Today we're looking at a notebook, although it's more an encyclopedia collection than a single book when it comes to size. This is due to the fact it's a desktop replacement; what this means is you get the ability to lift the unit up and move it around with you while still having the power of a full blown computer.

Getting back onto opening the box; instead of being greeted with your new notebook in a piece of plastic, we find ourselves looking at a briefcase with the Smooth Creations logo on it. This isn't a cheap brief case either; it's strong, sturdy, nice looking and packs some serious weight.
